In 2017, Microsoft first introduced a new design package called Fluent Design for its software lineup, but it’s not until now that we have a chance to take a closer look at this new aesthetic system. The company once announced a suite of new icons for Office in late 2018, and now it officially confirms that more than 100 redesigned icons have been projected to arrive in many apps and services offered by Microsoft.
Like some icons for Office we’ve mentioned above, new icons have been attached with a combination of soft edges, gradients, and depth. In comparison with the old designs which has been available since the launch of Windows 8. The new revamp gives those icons a more tangible, 3D feel. Furthermore, Microsoft expects to roll out this icon suite for not only current, familiar products like Windows but also future HoloLens and Xbox.
According to The Verge, the announcement of the new Windows logos took the same place with the Windows 10X introduction. The new logo for Windows 10X in the image below shares a lot of similarities with the current logo, but we can notice soft gradients with slightly rounded corners that the new one incorporates now. The change is just a subtle but it’s welcome.
In other words, Microsoft talked about its five components that it primarily focused on, including material, motion, depth, light, and scale. Shapes and gradients of those new logos really make users satisfied. Microsoft hasn’t yet to reveal the exact launch date for the arrivals of its new logo suite, but it says they’ll come soon.
